  1. I'm just explaining how I read his take. I also specifically said "last night" meaning, yeah, it was one game and really not much to draw any conclusions about. Dak certainly had his way last night. It is a one game sample size. I have Dak on one of my teams and I was thrilled with how he played last night. It looks like he picked up where he left off last year which is great.
  2. I'm not sure his point is that Dallas' D is good but more Tampa's D was overrated last night.
  3. Was the contract dispute that the Saints were offering more money to Murray because they valued him so much and Murray just isn't that kinda guy to take it?
  4. This doesn't make much sense. His price went up once there was a demand for his services. What ever they may not have wanted to pay him before certainly wasn't what they NEED to pay him now. Bottom line, if the Ravens thought he was better than what they had already they would have added him and cut the player they believed was the odd man out. So he is now a JAG, but a JAG who once had a good career and was productive. He hasn't been productive in a couple of years. If he had anything left in the tank Reid would have used him. All that said, I believe he gets some opportunity just due to the nature of the Ravens offense but he isn't worth adding and I wouldn't drop any Ravens back due to his presence either.
  5. At 446 pages, you should hope to find someone who loves you the way the Shark Pool loves talking about Josh Gordon.
  6. And The league ruled what they wanted to do. Another league may have done nothing. I’m not trying to convince you of anything and you aren’t going to change my mind. It is ok that we see this differently.
  7. We have laws against murder. We also have laws that allow killing under specific circumstances. There was no rule either requiring disclosure of or forbidding extra conditions on trades.
  8. I say you do and you say you don’t. That’s the beauty of different leagues with different opinions and rules. This league will decide for itself how to handle this.
  9. There was no requirement to disclose the conditions as there is no league vote on trades. Stop projecting your league rules and standards onto this league. It was a bad oversight but legal within the framework of the league. The trade would be collusion in your league. Both things can be true.
  10. How thick does a bylaw have to be to say: "All conditions of a trade beyond player currency, must be made available for league review." ?
  11. Lots of things can be written to address the spirit of the unwritten rules to cover unforeseen scenarios. In fact several rules and procedures could have been put in place to prevent this type of trade from being processed. The reality this league was woefully short on rules and this is what happens.
  12. While in your league such “currency” may not be allowed in this league it was not expressly forbidden. You can’t look at this as what is right or wrong in your league. What only matters is how the affected league rules are and how they will address this moving forward.
  13. No disclosure was required therefor nothing was kept secret. He willingly agreed to the terms to sit MT. He easily could have passed on the trade, nothing was forced upon him.
  14. No, he wasn’t forced to do anything he wasn’t willing to do. He is the one who wanted MT. MT was not forced upon him. This was more a situation of “would you rather” and he would rather have MT for 3 out of 4 weeks or not at all.
  15. They made a trade that was public knowledge to the league. The league, regardless of the players involved have no say and no recourse to either discuss, veto or question the trade. There simply is no league requirement to disclose the conditions of the trade. There was nothing "secret" about the trade. Everyone saw the trade. Where it went sideways was the league questioning the new MT owners decision to sit MT. Again, this is another question that is frankly none of the leagues business unless rules specifically state that all managers must start their most obvious players or best lineup based on projected points.
  16. Sorry but it does. It was a condition of the trade and the trade is the transaction. IF there was no trade and they discussed roster lineups that is collusion because it was secret in every way possible. The trade was not secret but the full condition was not disclosed. The trade did not happen in secret but there was no requirement to disclose the extra condition based on current league rules.
  17. And yet a rule can be written to prevent this. For me, we are in Prime Directive territory here. I am simply looking at this trade through the optics of the league rules and structure. For many leagues this trade is not ethical, legal etc. I get that and I am not arguing against any of that. But as far as this league is set up for now it is: 1. Not collusion because there is no stated review or disclosure process for the league. 2. Not tanking, because both teams made a move that both felt improved their teams. One for long term success and the other for short term success. That the results of the matchup had some league consequences none where greater than for the two teams playing and their results are what they are playing for. I don't believe in universal league rules so when judging any debate like this I will always default to the rules specific to the league. In this case they were woefully deficient in rules especially considering the buy in price. Nothing that I have said means I agree with it necessarily but I am simply being as objective as possible with the information at hand. I am not bringing any bias into the discussion. In just about any other league this would be collusion but not in this particular league by the narrowest of margins. And that is where the Prime Directive comes into play. This is their league setup and their league consequence. They will have to figure out a solution that improves their league moving forward on their own.
  18. Halle Berry was the most boss I have ever seen anyone on that show. She was a great interview and she owned every sauce. She is my Queen.
  19. Well, this league had no review process if it did we wouldn’t be on page 18 as this would be cut and dry otherwise.
  20. I’ll rewatch that episode. My favorite episode was Charlize Theron. She gave the best critiques of the sauces and I laughed out loud when she flipped off The Bomb. But I digress.
  21. When there is no league requirement to divulge the conditions there are no secrets kept from the league. The league has had a hands off approach to trades so there is no secret and no league violation.
